Here is a batch of black tea from the spring harvest of one of the leading gardens in the mountainous region of Darjeeling in India. Jungpana has been in our catalogue for several years now with its exceptional traditional Darjeelings sourced from classic plants.
Darjeeling 1st flush AvongroveLot DJ-4
From the renowned Euphoria section, exclusively reserved for the AV2 cultivar, the Avongrove garden presents a batch of black tea. This first plucking of the year, explosively aromatic, has led to the regional reputation as: the champagne of black teas.
The fine leaves rich with buds give a sweet liquor with the lightness of a white tea. Lacking none of the typical First Flush vigour this thirst-quenching tea delicately fills the mouth with subtle notes of wild flowers and sweet spices (aniseed, cloves) to finish on a mildly saline minerality.
To be savoured at any time of the day.
- Cultivar: AV2
- Producer: M. Nundy
- Altitude: 1850m
- Date of harvest: March 29, 2021
